You should be able too because I just performed a transmission R&R on a 99 cavalier and it just dropped out. just make sure you pull the CV axles out and there is a hidden bolt on the other side of the transmission that you will need a long extension for. Just remember to support the transmission because the bracket on the drivers side may not be enough to hold it.

if its a 2.2l all you have to do is remove crank pully and remove the motor mounts then you will be able to pull it out...only way..we have a 98 cavy and we can do it in less then 2hours....done this hundreds of time...
